Princeton Baby! February 7, 2011


We’re going SOLAR!

But maybe that’s only because they haven’t invented slush-power yet.

Princeton University will become a leader in American higher education in solar energy when it installs a 5.3-megawatt solar collector field on 27 acres it owns in West Windsor Township. The system, comprising 16,500 photovoltaic panels, is expected to be one of the largest single installations at a U.S. college or university.

About 80 percent of the new solar power system being installed on Princeton University property will be composed of SunPower T0 Trackers, which use a global positioning system to track the sun each day to maximize energy capture. (Photo by Tom Grimes Photography for SunPower)
